Overplayed? Yup, but it still rocks!

So today I heard the song below for the first time of the season which, in our house as I’m sure in many others, means it’s now OFFICIALLY CHRISTMAS! I’m not religious and I’m as fed up with all the Xmas commercialism as the next person, but still, how can you help but love this time of year? It’s so sparkly and cosy and comforting.  And a wee bit stressful too I suppose, though I have to say I’m fairly chilled at the minute myself. I finally got the tree up yesterday and hopefully tomorrow I’ll get the last of my shopping done. Then all I’ve left is to finish/start making and baking the rest of my presents.  You could almost say I’m pretty organised for once. Ask me that again next week and you may get a very different answer, but for now all’s just warm and fuzzy. The snow even came back again after abandoning us for a few days! Sweet. Anyway, I hope you folks are all well and are having a lovely week. Me, I’m off back to being organised and stuff.(Which, incidentally, I've decided I rather enjoy and may even keep up into the new year. Maybe it really is the season of miracles!)

I love this song, so I can never get enough. No such thing as over playing to me. :)

A great favourite with me too, Roisin. Story of my life. Maybe it's time to put the decorations up.

Hooray for organization! Wanna come over and set my place to rights? :-)
Thank you for your comment on my last post. You always leave such wonderful thoughtful and I very much appreciate it. It is so nice to be in such great company in the blogosphere! Also: great song.

And I love this song! It's awesome. I'd never heard it before tonight, but I super love it! =D

I love this song as well (and the Pogues in general, really) but I've never heard it played anywhere while out and about. I wish I did, that would be great! :)

I've actually never heard this song before! Very cool, thanks for sharing.

Congrats on getting organized! Good luck keeping it up.

Have a Merry Christmas!

I never heard this song. It is a big deal, though, so I understand. Very Irish. I LIKE it!! Thanks for sharing. Hope you're having a good Christmas season. Warm wishes to you dear Roisin. - Kathy

Glad you all enjoyed the song and I'm happy to have introduced some new fans to The Pogues! You know this tune is the only song Himself and I ever dance to; neither of us are big into the boogying usually but this gets us everytime :) I'm acutally surprised this song isn't more famous in the States, it is set there and all. It really is played to death here at this time of year, but it sure beats the rest of those crap Christmas songs you hear. Well folks, hope you're all having a lovely weekend!
